When he was named Federal Police Chief back in November, Fernando Segovia wasn’t given the benefit of the doubt. He was picked to lead an institution that investigates politicians by a politician under investigation. It also didn’t help that his name was reportedly vouched for by congressmen with a long list of their own encounters with the justice system. Segovia would have needed to perform his job perfectly to escape from criticism. Unsurprisingly, he failed, and was fired from the position after just 109 days.
Segovia was let go after sponsoring numerous actions perceived to be attempts by the government to tamper with federal investigations.
